comment What are your play experiences with The Secret Lives of Gingerbread Men?
ah, I see. no I've not played it, but I've played similar one-offs. The trick is just to have fun, its not roleplaying like you know it, its a game/story that has some roleplay in there. full-on characterisation is not possible, so just go from one set-piece to the next with a minimum of fuss, a minimum of competitiveness, and a lot of gentle fun.

comment Can Nymphs use shields?
I don't think 'grace' means 'physical figure' here :) The shield's not in the way by hiding her boobs behind it, its to get in the way of the overall sensuous movement and look. Give a ballerina a buckler and see if she still dances as well - that's where I was coming from.

comment How to create a D&D 3.5 player character race for Poison Elves
disagree about low-light vision: modern cities may be well lit, but olden times they were very dark at night. A poison elf who doesn't venture out much would have more stealth/hiding skills instead of the weapon ones perhaps.

well... I always figured it wasn't about protecting the wearer, more about distracting the attacker :)

comment How to get back into gaming?
the best game I played was a cyberpunk scenario - in the local pub. (we forgot the dice you see, so .. well, long story). Otherwise, I've played a lot - CoC, RQ, classic Traveller, D&D, and a heap more.

I was thinking that things have moved on from D&D, Runequest and Cyberpunk games I used to play. Eg. are they orientated towards the younger gamer or is there still a good mix.
